Shonie & Monty - Military "I Do" Redo

Military men, women, and their families make sacrifices on a daily basis that often go overlooked and under appreciated. That is why we believe it is so important to take a moment to thank all those who serve and acknowledge every sacrifice they make, from the small every day ones to the ultimate sacrifice. Shonie & Monty are just one military couple who have given up so much for the greater good of our country. They completely uprooted their lives and gave up the comforts of home. They put personal dreams on the back burner. And they had to forgo their ideal wedding for a license signing ceremony (with no rings or even photography).

Now like most military families, Shonie & Monty are not the type to complain and will make their sacrifices in silence. They did what they had to do to be together and that was that. But when they got word that they were being transferred all the way to Alaska, they knew they wanted to have a real wedding right here in Kansas City. So they finally got their ideal wedding, which for Shonie & Monty meant a mini ceremony with their son & friend by their side and a few pictures that will last a lifetime. We were so very honored to help give Shonie & Monty their well deserved “I Do Redo”.

Jana & Cory - Big Day With Little Helpers

We are so very excited to be sharing a piece of Jana & Cory’s wedding day with you all! The Chapel on The Corner was the perfect fit for these young lovebirds who just wanted a place to get married in a small but special way. As you will see, Jana & Cory have the most adorable family! So it’s no surprise they opted to have their wedding be an intimate, family focused affair. They gave their little helpers the big job of holding onto the rings and they absolutely stole the show! We feel lucky to have helped facilitate such a special moment for such special people and feel even more lucky to be sharing that moment with the world!

Jo & Ross - Long Distance Love

We all know that feeling. That one where you can’t get that certain person out of your head. When you find yourself daydreaming about them in the middle of the afternoon. Or like in Ross’s case, when you wake up in the morning with dreams of them still playing in your head. For Ross, that was the moment when he knew what he had with Jo was “something major” and lucky for him, she felt the same way. So after meeting up for the first time in person at the St. Louis Zoo, they decided to see if their love could last the time apart. Nothing puts puppy love to the test quite like a long distance relationship. Through online chat rooms and over skype dates, they only grew closer and more fond of one another. And in early spring, just a few years after their first date at the zoo, they walked down the aisle and began their new life together forever.

We were so honored to host a courthouse style mini ceremony and celebration for Jo and Ross along with a dozen of their closest friends and family. Join us in saying congrats to the long distance lovers. May you be side by side for the rest of your days!

Jennifer & Steven - Mini Ceremony, Big Love!

The word is out! You don’t have to go to the courthouse to have a low key, stress free, budget friendly wedding in KC. Jennifer & Steven can testify to that fact. Their little family spent a half hour at The Chapel on The Corner on a chilly but sunny Saturday in January. In that short time, Jennifer & Steven (directed by our lovely officiant) exchanged rings, said “I do”, and were pronounced husband & wife. On top of all that, they had a mini photoshoot, with our expert wedding photographer, capturing their ceremony and their first moments as an official family!

As a bride who didn’t see the appeal of walking down the aisle, Jennifer knew our courthouse style mini ceremony package was the perfect fit for her and her maverick fiance. Instead of a ceremony full of pomp and circumstance, Jennifer & Steven opted for sharing the spotlight with their little girl. The family of three stood at our altar and promised to be there for one another for the rest of their lives. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share their incredibly intimate ceremony with the world, and hopefully inspire more couples to buck tradition and instead focus on what matters most!

Linda & Michael - Long-awaited Elopement

Linda knew there was something special about Michael when they first met and it didn’t take long before she knew that she wanted to spend the rest her life with him. So that was that. Linda & Michael got engaged and began planning a big wedding. But, as cliche as it is to say, life had other plans. Linda was struggling to find a date and location that worked for the entire family, when suddenly she found out she was pregnant with Michael’s baby girl. Time spent finding the perfect dress and shoes quickly changed to time spent researching a safe crib and car seat. Their family went from a party of two to a party of three and Linda & Michael embraced their new roles as mom & dad.

Before they knew it, their baby girl was becoming a toddler and they were still in the “fiance zone”. Linda knew she wanted to be married to Michael, but she also knew she wanted her wedding to be something where she could, “have my dress and have the pictures and the memory of actually getting married without going to a courthouse in my jeans.” This time life listened and Linda & Michael eloped exactly the way they had dreamed of: just the two of them in a mini ceremony at our small wedding chapel in the heart of Kansas City (all captured by our seasoned wedding photographer). Life must have been listening closely as they were able to elope with us on the exact date of their four year anniversary. So today we toast the newlyweds, Linda & Michael - cheers to your love, faith, and most of all, patience!

Shelby & Steven - Sweet Soulmates

Oh Shelby & Steven. I swear, these two are the sweetest souls that have graced our small town wedding chapel. They have the kind of raw, fresh energy that only comes from two youngin’s in love.

See for yourself as we’re sharing (almost) the entire album of Shelby & Steven’s special day with you guys right now!
